    I'm sure most of you have seen it. The yin yang soap made in a Pringles can or PVC pipe. I've tried it a couple of times with moderate success. So yesterday I decided to try it again. The soap in the Pringles can all leaked out, so that was exciting. But I have always wondered if this could be done in a cavity mold. Turns out it can. I just cut some strips off a dollar store cutting mat. I just thought I'd share since it is something different to do with those little bits of batter that are left over.

    That's a fantastic idea! Lovely looking soap! I got some cutting mats to play with a while back, but I think they're too thick. I'll have to check the dollar store.

    Dollar store here has 2 mylar sheets for a buck. About 18 x 12 inches? Cheap play toys!

    I am going to try something like this as well! I love all the creativity here

    Can I clarify for my understanding.

    You poured white batter into one side of sheet-divided-mold, blue into the other, then carefully lifted the sheet-divider out? That is how it works in my mind

    Thanks!

    @Clarice Yes, that is correct. There are several YouTube videos if you want to watch - here is one I think it is easier to watch than try to explain how to roll the mat into the S shape.

    For the individual molds, I cut strips long enough to roll them the same way as in a pringles can/pvc pipe. Cut them wide enough so you that you have something to hold onto when you are pulling them out. I hope that makes sense. I think you can see my strips were probably 1/4" or so higher than the top of the mold.

    No. I held the divider down and poured one color at a time. I did finish pouring one bar before moving to the next so there wouldn’t be any leaking. My batter was at a light trace, not quite medium.

    Thank you @dibbles!

    I made so many mistakes today, batter was just part of it! LOL

    Really creative. Good job Dibbles.
    If using a cavity mold, I guess you will want to use a really fluid recipe.

    My batter was fluid, but not too thin. I'd say it was at light trace, heading toward medium.

    Very nice! With the addition of a drinking straw you might even be able to get the dot on each side too
